Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography Adds Programming to Annual Meeting

June 19, 2009 – The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) is set to hold its fourth annual scientific meeting, July 16-19, 2009 in Orlando, Fla.

This is the world's largest meeting focused exclusively on cardiovascular CT, attracting nearly 1,000 attendees, including cardiologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, technologists, nurses and practice administrators. The meeting is designed to provide current evidence-based information on the technical principles, methods, clinical results, potential applications and limitations in cardiovascular CT. In addition to the accepted abstracts selected from the large pool of submissions, world-renowned faculty will be presenting the latest research in cardiovascular CT.

Among the 55 sessions held at SCCT’s fourth annual scientific meeting will be an interactive session titled, “Advocacy and Reimbursement: 2010 and Beyond.” This recently added event will be held from 8–9 p.m. Thursday, July 16 to discuss current initiatives and future trends in the area of coding, practice expense calculation, and reimbursement for cardiac CT angiography. Attendees will also learn about proposed legislation and regulatory policies and how overall health reform initiatives will affect patient access to diagnostic imaging services.

Each year, oral abstract presentations covering the latest developments in cardiovascular CT are the highlight of the conference. This year is no exception, with an unprecedented amount of nearly 200 original scientific abstracts being presented as either oral or poster presentations. Accepted abstracts will be published in a supplement of the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.
